Coffee Cozy


whipup


This is a little cozy that I made over the weekend for the first Whipup sponsered WhipLash comp. with the theme "everyday creativity".


My original idea was for something to keep bottles warm,
but then I thought of how many times I'd been to a coffee shop and they'd run out of those java jackets. So I made my own. Good for the enviornment, uses stash yarn and super easy to boot!


In use:


Happy Easter!!!

ok, you should totally win the whip up competition. Your cozy is great! i wish I could knit but alas, must stick with sewing. Way to go!

Funky Finds said...

great job! the cozy is super cute!

I love your cozy! I always kick myself when I forget my thermos at home, and then I hoard the coffee sleeves and try to slip them back into the stash when I return to the coffee shop. Very clever solution.

What an excellent idea!

I don't have a cup holder in my car so I am forever getting dirty looks for snatching gobs of napkins or getting horrible burns on my thighs from holding the cup there while I drive. This should be the perfect project to show my obsession for coffee and needle arts ;-)

Thank you all for your comments! I wish that blogger would let me email you all individually, but for now I will just have to answer here.

aunistee: lol, you don't know how many times ive done that. I once spilt an entire cup of coffee down my front on the way to federal jury duty...

bekka: Thank you! I would love to see one if you make it.

ayelet: Thanks!

Dee: Thank you, and I think that your blogger photo is very cute!

You seriously need to sell those. I want some!

Kristie said...

This is so adorable. I have been looking all over for something like this.... Do you have a pattern? I would love to make some for the holidays!!!

It looks like there's a ton of variations of this idea! We made one using fabric that even has a sugar packet holder. You can see it here.

If you're not a knitter and want your coffee to stay drinkable for 40 minutes, use a Kup Kollar by Koffee Kompanions. This cup wrap is environmentally safe and is insulated with Thinsulate insulation by 3M used in Arctic clothing. The Kup Kollars come in a lot of cute fabrics and work on cold cups too! www.koffeekompanions.com
